* Please note: app is free to download & test for 1 minute. After that - you will have to purchase transcription minutes at ±$0.3 a minute. We hope you will find it worthwhile for its return in reliability, accuracy, elegancy & simplicity - a single touch to transcribe non-stop. We understand it's a bit pricy in today's market, but it's cause we ourselves pay for the transcription by the minute to our service provider (we chose to use Google's paid Speech-to-Text service for its accuracy and reliability).

As many amongst us suffer from reduced hearing, our mission is to help make everyday-life better for the hearing impaired, using cutting-edge technologies.

TextHear's app does non-stop high-precision speech transcription, suitable as a stand-alone app for non-stop dictation and for use with the TextHear phone adapter and microphone to aid hearing-impaired. As such, TextHear transforms any land line phone to a caption-phone, without the need for a second line.

Using it with a microphone, in face to face conversations, enables the hard of hearing to SEE what is being said. It is much easier than lips-reading and you won't miss a word. Simply place the microphone in front of them, click the mic - and let our app transcribe for you in real-time what they are saying.

Rip off - £8.99 for 30mins

Absolute rip off £8.99 for 30mins. Not clear anywhere until you've paid £120 for the adaptor and downloaded this app, which has no pricing detailed unless you use it. Trading standards misrepresentation and actual discrimination of the deaf by this appalling mis-selling of a product.

Tried it at home after technology update day at AOHL -during the first free credit it only picked up two words I was saying then credit ran out but mortified when prompt came up saying it's £8.99 for each 30 mins credit and no other options of prices and I think it should be £5 per month for unlimited usage would be more reasonable and affordable - no idea how you would make the money out of this if it's too expensive for people to buy in first place. It's a real shame as deaf like myself or hard of hearing would hugely benefit from this.
